Winter Words
by Patricia

When you are writing about winter, choose some seasonal words. Winter is cold, so people wear different clothes like mittens, boots, and hats. Plus, people do different activities like shovel, ski, and skate. Good sentences include adjectives that describe nouns like soft mittens, new boots and wool hats. They also include adverbs that describe verbs like shovel regularly, ski slowly, and skate smoothly. Prepositional phrases can tell a location like near the snowman, under the Christmas tree, or in the store. If you use some of these words to describe winter, your sentences will be more descriptive.

Now, try some of these matching quizzes with winter words.
